was the least rotten apple they could have gotten. >> paul: a rancid deal and i don't like the spinach reference. how much damage is there to the economy from in bill? >> well, i prefer the least rotten apple than spinach. i think that the two big problems here, people who believe that the rich should pay more do not understand the effects of marginal rates. when you raise marginal rates-- >> the next dollar of income that you earn. >> right, it lowers the incentive of the people that you want it take risk and to innovate and to create. that's one problem. so it will affect the growth of the economy. the other problem is, it does affect tax revenues. the guys with the green eye shades say well if we raise the taxes this much, we'll get this much more revenue. if you lower the incentive of people to take risk, generally what happens, revenue does not come in. >> paul: you don't get as much as you think you'll do. >> exactly. >> here, mary, look, the economy seemed, the stock market loved it, the hs blew out the next day and up based on the prospect that something would get d

of people up here. i have always argued some of the dumb things they do because i don't think it's in the interest of israel. i just don't think it's spamart for israel. some say chuck hagel owes an apology for that. after all, not all jews support what israel does. does hagel have to explain himself, david? >> well, i don't want to parse a brief phrase that a nominee has used. many people use unfortunate phrases and go on to be excellent nominees. the problem with chuck hagel is not a phrase. the problem with chuck hagel is a consistent attitude. the next secretary of defense will be -- will likely to have deal with two basic types of issues at the top of the inbox. the first is managing a defense build down, if the sequester goes into effect, a very dramatic defense build down. you need someone with excellent military management experience, which chuck hagen does not have. i think you were too kind to him in the opening presentation. the second challenge will be the challenge of iran. we are probably coming to the extreme decision point where iran in the four years ahead. and c
generally that revenue doesn't come in. >> paul: so you don't get as much as you think. mary, the economy seems to be -- the stock market loved this. they blew out the next day and based on the prospect something would get done. how long go market is recovering. the economy and job market still not great, 155,000 new jobs, but the economy does seem to be doing okay. >> i think that is probably okay. the economy will do okay. but when you have an unemployment at 7.8% and really stubbornly not budging, you want to do something that something more for the economy than just okay, muddling through. if you are president you can say why you are feeling it but there are lot of people feeling the slow growth. it's disappointing we weren't able to do something has more of a positive impact. >> there were a couple big words attached. one was uncertainty, the economy needed certainty and the other was a prospect of a recession. i think the deal undoubtedly does avoid a recession. we're not going to have negative growth, but we are probably going to have growth as we have had for the last two years of
with fannie, don't you find it odd that fannie is taking -- when taxpayers continue to get the shaft, a most gang lender -- mortgage lender whose little bi politicas date back to the clinton days? and the beneficiaries of bailout who collective are second to none, that does not make sense. it does not represent so much as a drop in the bucket. government watch dog, said that is the problem with bailouts, taxpayers keep losing out. tconsideratioty young is here t. the markets were sanguine on this, saying no surprise, blah, blah, blah, but i think it is offensive. >> of course, it is offensive, when bank of america took over countrywide loans under tarp the federal government agreed to payback any losses that bank of america had, when bank of america writes a $10 billion check to fannie mae, tax payers will be on the hook, the executives of fan may and freddy hacker losing money, and still getting bonus us. in private sector you get fired. neil: you know what is weird is that. the bank is paying the penalties for an entity that government all but forced it to buy. you have to wonder when fann
's very close to this president. i do not believe there will be a tough time for brennan. i don't know. john, what do you think? >> john, add to that the drone issue. there are a lot of people who have said that he was a big part of shaping the policy on shaping the unmanned aircraft and some people called them a tool for extra judicial killings. >> there will be -- i think best way to summarize it is this way. the hague el confirmation will be more personal. the brennan confirmation is more of a policy discussion. was the administration flat footed in benghazi? reactive or proactive with the arab spring? you make the point about the drones. this is very controversial. there are some democrat that is don't like it, sort of ron paul, rand paul libertarians that don't like it and facing sharp policy questions on that. the administration's policy will be when americans are wary of projecting military force overseas, the drone tactics have been largely effective. doesn't mean there won't be questions of using them going forward but i think the brennan confirmation process is about policy s
these matters resolved? look, the biggest problem confronting the country is not taxes, it's spending. we don't have this problem because we tax too little. we have it because we spend too much. we now have a $16.4 trillion national debt, as big as our economy. that alone makes us look a lot like greece. this administration has driven spending from 21% of our economy up to almost 25% of our economy. we've got to stop using the credit card, and any opportunity we have to engage the other side in a discussion about quitting the spending spree, we're going to engage in. >> and the question is, how do you follow through on your strategy, and, you know, a lot of your allies are worried about that prospect. "the wall street journal" editorial page said "the political result would be far worse if republicans start this fight only to cave in the end. you can't take a hostage you aren't prepared to shoot. do the two gop leaders have a better strategy today than they did in 2011?" and i guess you're hearing that phrase more and more now, shoot the hostage. are you prepared to do it, to see the country
to focus on first. >> well, i don't know that he's going to have much choice. he only has 16 months to governor before everyone starts running for president and no one is listening again. i think he does see some room for compromise over on pennsylvania avenue on that issue. but gun control has been just dropping it's ahead. the country is crying out about that more than anything else. i think he'll wind up doing both of those at once and that will be a tough road. >> john: gun control is an issue that democrats say people have hit the snooze button on since the 90s. can they get gun control through this congress. >> to be honest with you, i don't know what he can get through this congress. i think he can chip away a little bit at it, but i do think that if--i mean, if he tries to do--i think what vice president biden said today that's going to be one of the interesting things about the second term is the newly activated biden 2000. this guy has turned into a negotiating device at the president's hand. if they do try to do something by executive action you will hear heads explode. >
it was a police officer. i don't think anyone is arguing that police officers, perhaps even off-duty police officers should be armed. the second one is the actual situation that you get when you have lots and lots of individuals running around trying to play vigilante. >> it is interesting, there were others e-mailing us, saying we were afraid to tell that story, because they point to us as a sign that people being armed is a good idea, kind of to address the conspira speear theories. you actually say there is more common ground and the thing that is the president could do that the nra would actually give thumbs up to. what do you see? >> the truth is i'm much less interested in the politics than the policies that can come from it. the president has taken a lot of flack from people like mayor mro bloomberg for not doing enough on gun control. but there are things like enforcement. 77,000 people have lied on criminal background checks on whether they could legally obtain a gun. they have been identified by the fbi, turned over by the justice department, and not processed. the administration

not little scratches and cuts. it looks like defensive wounds and i don't know how anybody could overlook that. as far as the idea that drawing dealers came to collect money from her. if you you remember on your show in the 1990s when i made the sensational claim that we had proof that whitney houston was being threatened by her drug dealer with death because she wasn't paying for her drugs that was before anybody knew that whitney was taking drugs. all this was borne out because whitney admitted she had been taking drugs since 1992. when she died her yearly intake of drugs was $230,000 and there were numerous cases not just that we claimed of h her being approached by drug dealers and threatened with physical harm and death and in one case bobby brown was kidnapped. there was a whole book written about this incident. he was kidnapped by a gang called the preacher gang and they tied him up naked, beat him, tortured him, pointed guns at his head and then had him call whitney and say you better bring $400,000 or we are going to kill your boyfriend. >> rod wheeler, former well known homicide

was no underwriting. this lender by the way saddled with the new york attorney general's office because i don't know of you guys remember, it was called the preferred lender list where you know lenders were in some cases accused of paying b-schools for preferential treatment and for them to steer students toward a particular loan products. that was the case with this lender. when you think about, you can sort of understand some of the anger and how a generation may rightly feel very duped in some ways and stock with very little relief at this point now that they are so far in debt. >> now a look at the tenure and legacy of house speaker john boehner. we will show you as much of the "washington journal" segment as we can until the richard nixon 100 birthday gala in about half an hour. >> host: on wednesday here in the "washington journal" in our last hour taking look at a recent magazine piece. we are joined by robert costa at national review to talk about a couple of pieces you have written. we will start with the most recent.

with that fact, will you? it's his job to defend this country. and he's done a pretty good job of doing it, don't you think? well, the commander in chief said today he wants a former vietnam enlisted guy to be his secretary of defense, a guy who can't walk through an airport metal detector and not get reminded of the shrapnel he took in that sad but heroic american war. the president wants chuck hagel in that post because he thinks like him and has proven he's got the brains to protect this country. hagel long ago proved he's got the heart. don't you think? i don't hate the people trying to stop the president from picking this guy for the job he needs done at the pentagon, but i do recognize their tactics. they're the same ones they used to push the war in iraq. they say they don't like something he said hagel did 14 years ago about a gay man being put up for ambassador. i don't like it either, but, a, it was 14 years ago, and, b, i don't think it's got anything to do with why the hawks are opposing him. since when is the right wing of this country is caring for gay rights? as bill clinton woul

in washington who personally don't like chuck hagel. they may actually like him personally but he rubbed some people the wrong way in the course of doing politics in d.c. what do you think is going on here with someone like senator mccain says one thing six years ago and another thing today. people like lindsey graham bring up the word "israel" an awful lot. what's at the core of the opposition? >> i think some of those substantive issues do concern him? . john and joe are right. chuck hagel has distanced himself from the republican party in a real and significant way. he essentially voiced support in 2008 for then senator obama's campaign for the presidency. traveled with him offer seas and really worked to squash concerns raised by mccain at the time and some of the fringe of the republican party barack obama was unfit, unqualified and maybe not even an american. this confirmation hearing will be important. it's obvious even some democrats want to hear answers from senator hagel on a variety of issues. have confidence he will be confirmed unless one of these senators steps forward and says

don't want them here, alluding to those who might benefit from the d.r.e.a.m. act. so republicans have their own pr campaign to conduct with latinos on immigration reform, but how is the president going to combat republicans who want to see a more piece meal approach as we move forward here? >> reporter: i think we've seen the way the president has handled other recent challenges from his republican opposition when you consider just the fiscal cliff hanger as it were with campaign stops in various parts of the country. consider a statistic that i think a lot of americans are going to refocus on is the immigration conversation returns to the fore. it's the fact that the president won 70% of the hispanic vote in this past election. a dramatic -- dramatic element in his success and obviously the republican party recognizes it's harsh language, some rhetoric used by mitt romney and other republicans around the country didn't help its chance of gaining support within that community. john boehner, the speaker of the house, has said that they need to have a more practical, a more pragmatic ap

will not negotiate over whether to raise the debt limit. why don't you believe him? >> well, i don't believe him for sort of practical reasons and partly for the history of his negotiating style. the practical reason is we have a couple of things coming up that he is clearly going to negotiate over, one of which is the sequester, the automatic spending cuts that they delayed for two months when they did the fiscal cliff deal. that is going to expire late february and early march. it is hard for them to say we are going to negotiate but don't call it a debt ceiling negotiation. we'll just call it a sequester negotiation. i think that is a difference without a distinction. i think what the president demonstrated in the end of the fiscal cliff negotiation and a couple of previous negotiations is he is a guy who wants a deal even when he is holding all the cards as he was in the fiscal cliff negotiation. he is not a guy who wants to tempt fate. he doesn't like chaos. he wants to get a deal. he wants both sides leaving the table thinking they got something. he wants to prove that washington can work.

event, you have a diplomatic illness. >> why don't we apply the same standards to school kids. i want to see a doctor's note. >> yeah, i've been doing a lot of work on that. she is the first reported case and it's a very, very severe one. >> very, very severe. what's the medical report on that? >> classy, right? questioning if she was really sick. getting mocked after a serious head injury. but, on the same day she gets back to work, we have a new challenge for the right. we're embarking on chuck hagel's nomination for secretary of defense, a former senator praised by republicans. so what will the knee jerk reaction be to this? i'm going to say optimistic and hope they'll do the right thing. thanks for watching. i'm al sharpton. "hardball" starts right now. >>> hagel for defense chief. let's play "hardball." >> good evening. let me start tonight with president obama. this country's commander in chief. start with that fact, will you? he's done a pretty good job of doing it, don't you think? well, the commander in chief said today he wants a former veelt nam enlisted guy to be his
an extraordinary year, thank you for watching. >>> hello, everyone, i'm deborah in for don lemon. let's get you up to speed on the headlines. hillary clinton is returning to work tomorrow morning. it will be his first day back since she was delined by a stomach virus followed by a concussion and blood clot in her brain. she was released wednesday from a new york hospital. according to her schedule clinton will meet with her assistant secretary tomorrow morning. that meeting is her only public event of the day. >>> president obama plans to nominate chuck hagel as the next secretary of defense. reaction is already pouring in, some positive, some not. we'll have much more on the story in a moment. >>> pakistani intelligence officials say a suspected u.s. drone strike killed 17 people today. today's attack follows two suspected u.s. drone strikes last week that killed 15 people, including a taliban commander with ties to the pakistani military. demonstrators protested against drone strikes thursday and burned a u.s. flag. >>> parents in new york are on edge tonight waiting to hear if their children wi
heated extremes. >> i don't think the federal government has any business having a list of law abiding citizens who choose to exercise their right to keep and bear arms. >> but for vice president joe biden, an assault weapons ban is just the beginning. >> good to have you with us tonight, folks. thanks for watching. today president obama nominated a uniquely qualified candidate to be secretary of defense. former senator chuck hagel, republican out of nebraska, puts country over party, and is a true independent, an independent thinker who will speak his mind. maybe that's why the republicans are crying foul. president obama nominated senator hagel despite early attempts by hagel critics to sideline the nomination. the president praised hagel for his impressive credentials. >> he is an american patriot. he enlisted in the army and volunteered for vietnam. as a young private and then a sergeant, he served with honor alongside his own brother. when chuck was hit by shrapnel, his brother saved him. when his brother was injured by a mine, chuck risked his life to pull him to safety. >> and t
shutdown? >> i helped close the government twice. i think that is a dead loser. >> hopefully we don't get to that point. >> a place for politics. >> well, i got 98% of what i wanted. i'm pretty happy. >> the republican party losing streak continued today as a new poll shows that republicans also lost in the public perception of the fiscal cliff negotiations. "the was post" shows that 30% approve the way house speaker john boehner handled fiscal cliff negotiations, 56% don't approve, 53% approve the way president obama handled negotiations. 40% disapprove. today, chris christie continued his campaign against house republicans. >> we look forward to what we hope will be quick congressional action on a full, clean, sandy-aid bill now. now, next week, one thing i hope that everybody in america now clearly understands, new jersey, both republicans and democrats will never stand silent when our citizens are being shortchanged. >> and let's not forget what governor chris christie said last week. >> there is only one group to blame for the continued suffering of these innocent victims. the house
disappoint a lot of folks. >> well you know what they say, if at first you don't succeed. >> today, republican governor chris christie told matt that the republican party is in trouble. >> but are you happy with the course of the republican party right now? do you think it is head understand the right direction? >> we have lost two national elections, i would say no. we're in politics to win, we need to think about doing something different. >> today, governor chris christie appeared on five morning shows and is also on the cover of this week's issue "time magazine." today, the governor gave the republicans this advice. >> what are you getting right that republicans in washington, d.c. are getting so wrong? what don't they get? >> we're compromising when we need to. i'm in divided government. i have a democratic senate and democratic assembly. so what that means is, i'm not going to get everything i want. >> here is what chris christie thinks of the tea party. >> i don't think they have had too much influence, and i think there is a lot of things -- >> you don't think that is why t
that a number of democrats will be different when the hearing actually starts. after that i actually don't think this is about obama particularly opposition. a lot of republicans don't like chuck hagel. chuck hagel for years now has criticized the iraq war. he's criticized virtually every view john mccain has had about foreign policy. and john mccain's a leading figure in the republican party on foreign policy. so it's not surprising to me. what you have to see is how well the white house defends this pick. right now this is a pick that doesn't have a lot of friends on either side of the party. ultimately democrats are going to listen to what barack obama says about his own cabinet. another thing important to mention here is like matt was saying a bit is, take the john brennan pick. the john kerry pick. obama's trying to surround himself with people he really is friends with and likes. the first term was people like hillary clinton, jim jones, bob gates. they're big names. those aren't necessarily obama allies. brennan, hagel, kerry, susan rice, these are really people obama knows and is close t
are supportive of israel. i don't know what his management experience is regarding the pentagon. little, if any. so i think it's an incredibly controversial choice and it looks like the second term of barack obama will be an in-your-face term. >> so what are some of the issues? start with israel. as you heard, a number of his opponents, especially on the republican or conservative side think chuck hagel is not a friend of israel and point to his position on iran sanctions. they say because of his position that iran sanctions essentially aren't effective, that that is another point against him. also, from the liberal side, comments about a dozen, maybe 14 years ago, that chuck hagel made about a candidate for an ambassadorial position, where he called him openly and aggressively gay. now, chuck hagel has since apologized for that, but that also raises some haggles among some people on the more liberal side. not going to be a friendly reception up in the senate, however, the white house obviously thinks they can pull it off. >> an interesting confirmation hearing, that's for sure. >> let's talk a
a chance to speak for himself. why all the prejudging, i don't know. >> the senate officially rejected nine cabinet nominations since 1834. the last cabinet nominee rejected by the senate was john tower, nominee for secretary of defense in 1989. >>steve: we also know he was for the iraq war but then was against the iraq war, and then said the surge would never work. then when it worked, he never admitted that it worked. >> that's right. he's been on the intelligence advisory committee of the president and the president feels very close to him. brian. >>brian: all right. thank you very much. meanwhile, let's talk a little bit about this. it's a little rehash of the fiscal cliff. shortly after that was actually passed, our friend steven moore from the "wall street journal" sat down with john boehner, speaker of the house, who was shortly -- after he sat down -- before reelected. john boehner revealed essentially the president's mind-set. john boehner kept talking about, look, mr. president, we've got a spending problem in this country. and the president said we don't have a spending problem.
